Narcissism and power
On the psychoanalysis of mental disorders in politics
EUR 19.90

"An excellent study that describes the dilemma of egocentric exercise of power." Caroline Fetscher in the Tagesspiegel on July 2, 2011 The possibility of exercising political or economic power feeds fantasies of size and omnipotence. Conversely, career aspirations and ruthlessness pave the way to the control centers of power. In detailed case studies - i.a. About Prime Minister Uwe Barschel, ex-Federal Chancellor Helmut Kohl, ex-Sponti and Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer and Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic - the author analyzes the interdependencies between personality traits, individual psychopathology and the ethnic, religious and cultural identity conflicts of the respective reference group and those of society.

Hans-Jürgen Wirth (ed.)
Hitler's grandchildren or children of democracy?
The 68er, the RAF and the Fischer debate
EUR 19.90

The discussion about Joschka Fischer's past as a militant street fighter is also intended to discredit the 68 movement. The conservatives are concerned with a late reckoning with the 68ers and with the power to interpret contemporary history. However, the wrong ways of the 1968 movement, especially terrorism and militancy, must also be critically analyzed. Using the example of Birgit Hogefeld, whose life path can be considered exemplary not only for the terrorists of the RAF, but for the entire generation of protest, the authors show that the violence, the moral rigorism, the exaggerated ideologization of the 1968 movement as an unconscious one Answer to the denial of the Nazi past can be understood. With contributions by Carlchristian von Braunmühl, Birgit Hogefeld, Hubertus Janssen, Horst-Eberhard Richter, Gerd Rosenkranz, Annette Simon and Hans-Jürgen Wirth. [more]
